Systems from Bosch and Bosch Rexroth can improve operations from the ground to the cloud.
Bosch Rexroth will showcase a variety of new systems, products and technology during CONEXPO/IFPE March 7-11, 2017 in Las Vegas, including the new iCube display as well as Genius Cab, an innovative wheel loader cabin concept developed by Bosch and five other companies.
Bosch Rexroth is headed to Las Vegas with its newest products and technology for CONEXPO/IFPE March 7-11, 2017. Featured systems include the new 3-D iCube demonstration display that lets customers access 15 different construction applications on four dedicated touch screens. The system allows customers to explore solutions and benefits instantly, rotating each Rexroth component, and zooming in and out for more information as desired.
Another featured system is the Genius Cab, shown for the first time in the U.S. at CONEXPO, an innovative wheel loader cabin concept developed by Bosch and five other companies. Bosch and Bosch Rexroth components included on the cab are: direct drive wiper, body computer, ultrasonic sensing, digital outer mirror, BCM software, DI4 terminal and joystick. The project’s aim is to demonstrate to manufacturers of construction machinery, agricultural machinery, and industrial forklifts how much potential there is for efficient system integration. The concept won an innovation award at Bauma 2016 in the Design category.
Product highlights include new technologies aimed to improve performance in skid steer loaders, compact track loaders, and drive train solutions:
• The A21 VG 35/45 compact double pump for closed-circuit applications featuring an efficient back-to-back design that allows for installation in application with very limited mounting space.
• New A2FM bent-axis hydraulic motors which are up to 26 percent more compact than their predecessors and are notable for their high power density.
• The new A30VG, an axial piston variable pump, suitable for wheel and travel drives, enables short engineering times for hydrostatic travel drives thanks to its full compatibility with Rexroth‘s mobile electronics range and well-proven standard software for the EP control concept.
• New radial piston motors (MCR5T, MCR6T) are shorter, stronger and more efficient with 20 percent shorter installation length, 10 percent higher starting torque and high travel speeds with low diesel rotational speeds.
Visitors should also make sure to check out Bosch Rexroth’s additional new hydraulic and mobile electronic products, which include:
• CHoose, a new compact hydraulics configuration tool that can speed time to market.
• The Hägglunds CBm delivers the world’s highest torque-to-weight ratio with all of the advantages expected from a direct drive motor.
• New 8000 series transmission units cover a wide range of applications for hydrostatic travel drives.
• The award-winning BODAS DI4 is a freely programmable 7-inch screen with multiple display functions and video images which can be shown on a single display.
• With BODAS software DRC function modules, vehicle manufacturers can achieve considerably lower costs during the integration and application of hydrostatic travel drives.

OEM Off-Highway has announced its Top Ten New Products of 2016 and Bosch Rexroth’s BODAS DI4 made the list.
Since the European Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC has come into effect in 29 December 2009, machine manufacturers have to comply with and therefore have to assess the risks resulting from their machinery. An important measure for risk reduction is functional safety, e.g. based on the harmonized standards IEC 62061 and ISO 13849. The new Rexroth joystick 4THEC5 SIL2 is a key component for advanced mobile working machines and offers a unique solution. The Rexroth device is fully SIL2/PL d capable including handgrip functions (on/off push buttons and rockers, proportional rollers). In addition, its design increases robustness, safety and user ergonomics.
